Never once bolted early in 8 years of shows. For one, I actually LOVE US Blues. For another, my basic attitude was always "You never know". Classic example was the double encore at the Cap Centre in '88 of OMSN and Ripple. Thousands streamed for the doors during Saturday Nite (and to be fair, it had not been a great show). I'll be that place was 1/3 empty by the time the started Ripple.

Yup I was there, that Ripple is the prime example of this. Funny thing for me was I didn't really even know how rare it was until I got out in the parking lot and was informed.
Favorite encore was the Brokedown-Bid you Good Night on 9-26-91. Just hit me right I guess. Blackbird was fun also...
Favorite Regular encore: Baby Blue but sometimes Knockin too.
I'll also agree with the poster before who commented on Baba O'riley-TNK's. The one time I saw it in Vegas was a lot of fun and nobody was complaining then as I recall.
